Toronto is 6-2 in their last 8 games and 4-0 in their last 4 Tuesday games. The under is 4-1-1 in Toronto’s last 6 road games. Boston is 5-2 in their last 7 Tuesday games and 7-3 in their last 10 home games. The over is 6-2 in Boston’s last 8 home games. The over is 5-0 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.


Boston was able to get the win in Game 1 in this series on Monday, but Toronto has been the better team to start the season. Boston has hit the ball well to start the year, but their pitching has really let them down. The Red Sox have a team ERA of 4.50. Boston is starting Tanner Houck, who has allowed three earned runs or fewer in all five starts this year. The Blue Jays are starting Yusei Kikuchi, who has allowed two earned runs in his last three starts (17.2 IP). I like Toronto to get the win here.
